The Foundation’s commitment focused on supporting a culture of informed saving for the economic sustainability of families and economic growth, supporting the global objectives of the 2030 Agenda, including Goal 8.
In 2019, the sponsorships of the Global Thinking Foundation began for two sports teams, different from each other but equal in spirit and in the mission to spread healthy and responsible economic behaviour through the universal values of Sport and teamwork. New opportunities for social inclusion arise from this sharing of values:

# Respect for the rules and personal discipline
# Social commitment and collaboration
# Responsibility in one’s role and towards others
#Resilience and mutual help
to contribute to the development and realization of the person without distinction of age, sex, origins, beliefs and opinions, because Sport is a unique opportunity for action and reflection and to transform our societies guaranteeing a peaceful and supportive future new generations.
